Weight Loss is 80% Nutrition, 20% exercise. Eating right is the hardest thing to get under control. Planning your meals is the single most important thing – being mindful of what you eat. Here’s my breakfast that kickstarted me today…
This is a super FAST way to do breakfast. Oatmeal – 1 min, cut up a strawberry to add for flavoring. Hardboiled eggs cook for about 8 min (you can do a dozen at a time and have a few days worth ready). and fresh green beans.
Protein drinks… Incorporating Protein drinks into your daily meal planning will keep you fuller longer and curb off the sweets. I love the Chocolate protein drinks, it keeps me from craving a snickers! I drank 1/2 of a protein drink on my way to workout this morning (5:30am), the other 1/2 on the way home. I’ll have another later this morning.
Water, H20, Agua! Increasing water intake also increases your metabolism. I’ve been drinking about a gallon of water a day. Many people say you need to calculate your weight, cut it in half and that’s how many ounces you need to drink of water every day. For example: 280lbs X .5 = 140 ounces. One gallon is 128 oz. so I’ve pretty much stayed around that for the past few months. Drinking lots of water consistently keeps your body hydrated and flushes out toxins and all the excess junk in your body…Boy did I need a detox. Years of eating sweets every day can take a toll on your body!
Timing: Eat or drink a protein drink every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Sip on water all day long (or drink a 16 oz bottle of water about every hour or so).
My schedule & example of my Meal Plan:
5:30am Protein Drink

11:30am Protein Drink
2:00pm Lunch: Chicken Breast seasoned with Mrs Dash, brown rice & cucumbers
4:30pm Protein Drink
7:00pm Dinner: Fish (Tilapia) flavored with Mrs Dash Garlic and lemon with zucchini
9:00pm Greek Yogurt with 4 raspberries
What are you having today?
Super easy lunch today: 3.5 oz Chicken, 1/2 c. brown rice & 1c. cucumbers.
Chicken breast cut & marinated with a little balsamic vinegar, Mrs Dash, garlic & lemon.
Cooked on the non-stick foil about 20 min then topped it off with a squeeze of lemon once done.
I cooked up a few breasts so it’s easy to meal prep for a couple days. Easy clean up too! Did the same meal for the family-the kids just dip the chicken in BBQ sauce! I cooked a pot of rice with no salt, then pulled out 2 cups (for me for meal prep) then added a little sea salt for the rest of the family.
